The young women and men of the Corps work hard protecting and restoring California’s environment and responding to disasters, becoming stronger workers, citizens and individuals through their service.
The CCC has been honored with a national information technology award for its new online application process.
The award was presented by the National Association of State Chief Information Officers in Nashville, TN this week. The CCC was the only California state agency to win an award, which was in the "Fast Track Solutions" category.
The focus of the award was the CCC's new online applications system. Over a four-month period, the CCC recruitment and IT staff, along with Job Science, designed a web-based system for people to join the CCC. Previously the application process was done on paper, and required more in-person meetings and travel for both applicants and staff.
Since the system went online, the CCC now receives more than 800 applications a month through its website, compared to some 50 with the old system.
Here is a link to YouTube video produced by the CCC's IT staff about the new system:
